Cold Feet star gives Anthony H Wilson memorial Lecture 2017

Tony Wilson is one of the region’s defining media figures and “Mr Manchester” is rightly remembered each year by RTS North West’s Anthony H Wilson Memorial Lecture.

Chaired by Granada News presenter Lucy Meacock – a former colleague of Wilson on Granada Reports and Granada Upfront – the lecture drew a large audience of 150 people to the Lowry Theatre, Salford in mid-October.

As well as his television work, Wilson also ran Factory Records, home to Joy Division, New Order and many other Manchester bands.
